60th Annual: April 26-28, 2017, in Rochester, NY

Did you know that ours is the longest-running, continually-held, short film festival … in the world? Well, it is!

The Rochester Int’l. Film Festival runs for three days each Spring. We screen dozens of short films (<30 min.) for near-capacity crowds at George Eastman Museum’s famed Dryden Theatre.

Our fest has been produced and presented by the arts organization Movies On A Shoestring, Inc., since 1959. MOAS is a 100% volunteer run 501(c)(3) nonprofit. We apprecaite your support!
